Developing Maths Skills at Home
Due to my role working with adults, I have a unique perspective on children's education. My view is 20/20 because I get to look back on a persons' learning history and figure out what went wrong. A persons relationship with maths is ALWAYS a factor, for reasons I've discussed a lot on this blog.
The family culture possibly plays the BIGGEST part in determining whether a child will achieve mathematically or not. And it needs to start early. The clip below gives ideas about how to cultivate a family culture that will contribute to a healthy mathematical outlook. It also includes math problems you can use with your children or yourself. If you are home-schooling this should be useful.

This is genius. Nice work. I'm going to repost and link back to here.ReplyDelete
As a follow up, why don't you post the slides for people to print out. They can stick them to the wall or whiteboard. Or fridge works well a whiteboard.ReplyDelete
This is a great idea. Please could you post links to some of the websites you use as sources for these problems?ReplyDelete
Thanks Graeme and Diva! Good idea about the slides Graeme - I'm on it. Thanks for reposting too - appreciate it.ReplyDelete
Diva, a bunch of people have all asked the same thing - so yes I'll totally get on to it. I'm a bit lazy so give me a day or two.
